The Oldest Blog
A first amendment blog for school administrators and attorneys.
Thompson & Horton is excited to welcome Jackie Wernz as our newest partner.
Jackie will bring to our Dallas office 14 years of experience in education law, including serving as a partner at an education law firm in Chicago and as a civil rights attorney for the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.
Jackie is a distinguished litigator, trusted client-counselor, and in-demand national speaker on a wide range of education and employment law issues. She is perhaps best known for her prominent legal voice online. Followers of her popular Title IX blog posts will soon be able to keep up with changes in the law through a new blog from Thompson & Horton (coming soon!). You can find Jackie on Twitter at @JackieWernz.
Jackie’s wealth of knowledge and experience will be a welcome addition to Thompson & Horton, in Title IX and beyond. As Jackie explained, “I was initially drawn to Thompson & Horton because of its excellent Title IX reputation in the national education law community. As someone who focuses a large part of my practice on Title IX and civil rights, joining a team with renowned Title IX and civil rights lawyers like Lisa Brown, Chris Gilbert, Katie Long, Lisa McBride, and Holly McIntush was an obvious choice. The breadth and excellence of the firm’s practice in the full range of education and employment law issues that I practice was icing on the cake.”
